Despite all reservations and thoughts I have about what this election actually says about race in America, this is the shit that brings it home emotionally.
Amanda Jones, child of a slave, votes for the first Black president.
Wow, right? Wow.
In case you think Obama voters are zealots:
"I feel good about voting for him," Amanda Jones said.
Making it to see the election results on Nov. 5 is important, but Jones is resting up for another milestone: her 110th birthday in December. "God has been good to me," she said.
Class act, man!
